This seminar is for both new and experienced government contractors/grantees who want to learn how to protect their intellectual property and proprietary information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Competitors frequently request federal contract and grant information under the FOIA that potentially puts any information submitted to the government into the hands of competitors.

Topics Will Include:

  • An overview of the FOIA and the requirements to disclose executive agency records
  • The FOIA exemptions to the disclosure requirements, and which exemptions can be used to protect your intellectual property and proprietary information
  • The FOIA process and the agency’s obligations to notify you that your information has been requested under FOIA
  • Best practices for protecting your intellectual property and proprietary information
  • Recent developments that may strengthen or weaken protections under FOIA


  • Richard Vacura
    Partner and Chair of Government Contracts Practice Group, Morrison & Foerster LLP

We will apply for Virginia CLE credit after the program.
